NC State is a part of college football's early slate for the first time this season, and maybe that's for the best considering the rain threatening to drown the southeastern United States and/or wash it into the south Atlantic. The Wolfpack is making its 2015 ACC Network debut, which is to say that it's time to say hello to our favorite mis-identifier of people and events, Mr. Tim Brant!
Brant will be on the call for what could be an outstanding game--the line is NC State -4, so Vegas sees little difference between the Pack and Louisville if you ignore the home-field-advantage boost built into those odds.
But this game could veer off course in any number of directions thanks to the weather and the treacherous field conditions that may come with it. Let's hope that doesn't happen, unless, you know, it veers in a good direction for NC State.
